Avatar f tn hi, my grandmother just had a mild a stroke, she is 75 years old and had a bypass operation about 15 to18 years ago. her condition worsens every single day, like first she only has weakness of her left arm muscles, but now, just after 2 weeks she cannot stand already, and have been complaining pains in different parts of the body....what i know about mild stroke is that it has a very good prognosis, then why is it that with the case of my grandmother, it seems to be progressing?

Avatar m tn I had a mild stroke in the mid brain near the pons a year ago. Recently I had an extensive MRI/MRA done with contrast. The findings show a mild irregularity of the basilar artery. Also the left vertebral artery is hypoplastic. Both M1 segments are slightly extended throughout their course. I currently take 75mg of Plavix daily. What is the meaning of this, the treatment and prognosis?
Avatar f tn That time her bllod sugar was 224.That time they gave her insuline as well. Is it stroke or any ather condition? Before that she was fine walks around no problem climbing staircase. Is any body know what is this?
Avatar n tn She apparently had a mild stroke recently as evidenced by her slurring of speech and some lack of facial muscle control on the left side. In the past she has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure and she is currently taking 5mg vasotec and .125 digoxin. We don't feel that she would survive an operation. Are there any options? Is an operation advisable? What would be the prognosis without an operation?
Avatar f tn ,she had an right occipital parietal stroke 5 months ago.she was leftwith some visual disturbance and mild left sided weaknes.The first catscan done in the ER showed no changes and an eeg showed mild slowing on left side.Four days later she finally had a mri the MD states it showed ischemic dementia.Can you give me any answers why my mom had mild memory loss one minute and 15 minutes later shes totally confused and on the way to the hospital.
Avatar f tn 3 weeks ago I had a mild stroke that did not affect any of my gross motor skills. I lost some functionality in my left hand, but now apparently have full use of the hand, but numbness at the end of 1 finger. 90% of the functionality of the muscles on the left side of my face has been restored. I speak very clearly and can modulate my tone effectively as long as I am not tire. Excellent recovery except for dealing with fatigue.

Avatar f tn i am looking for people that had a massive stroke with a not so good prognosis. Also, i did have one neurologist tell me that he wold hold onto hope if this were his mother, despite all other poor prognosis. Do you think this is a good sign?

Avatar m tn Hi, its difficult to tell the exact prognosis. As the post stroke swelling subsides she may recover function. But now all depends on if her vitals are stable or not. As she is improving and if the "stroke" is stabilized, and there is no further bleeding or clotting I would remain optimistic. Regards.
Avatar f tn In other strokes only partial paralysis may be involved, which may disappear. So, prognosis will depend on the type of stroke and the status of other conditions, like the present stage of lung cancer and the therapy given. And seizures need to be controlled with antiepileptic medications. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn 46 yr old healthy female. 4-21-97 Had frontal right brain mild stroke due to dissecting carotid aneurysm. From day one all questions and symptoms have been responded to by doctor with "that shouldn't be happening" or "we don't know anything...there's nothing we can do." Head feels weird. can't tolerate excitement, esp. extreme visual or audio stimulation. Slight left side weakness. Always fatigued.
Avatar f tn I was rather concerned that I may have suffered a mild stroke. Thankfully not. Thank you for your time and response. Kind regards.

Avatar m tn but however the isotop test showed the following, Abnormal SPECT perfusion study suggestive of a medium region of mild ingerior ischemia with a summed difference score of 3 Normal left venticular systolic funtion with an EF of 53%. the basilar two thirds of the inferior wall is equivocal for ischemia. the remaining wall segments demonstrate normal perfusion. I am 45 yrs of age and normally do a spinning call or tread mill for around an hour every other day.
Avatar n tn So to those who have been following the birth and scary moments with my little Adam Dale, after more testing today we found out that he had a stroke during or shortly after delivery. They are not sure why but the long term prognosis is pretty good. Still scary as heck but at least we have answers. He seems to be doing really well and has not had any more seizures since early this morning.
Avatar n tn My father took a stroke 12 days ago, his Hippocampus that controls the short term memory has been damaged. Does anyone have an estimation how long it can take to come back?
